So recently got my Knights can out of jail, love the thing to death but was wondering about the oring. I screw down my can all the way to the end where it meets the slide and the piston flat is at roughly the 5 o'clock position. But the oring gets literally stripped in half. Am i supposed to screw it all the way down or just to the point were i start to feel the resistance from the Oring?
One of the really great things about KAC's can is that it doesn't back off while shooting due to this o ring. You need to tighten it just enough so that it is on there, but don't overdue it. It doesn't take a lot of turns to get on the gun and should be easy and quick to detach when you are ready. I had the same issue before with mine being split and KAC sent me some new ones free of charge.
Ah ok thats great to know i was wondering since im thinking yeah this o-ring isnt holding much like that i must be tightening it too much. Im assuming thats the little space on the mk23 barrel just so that it meet the barrel?
I spit on my KAC O-ring. Gross, I know, but the O-ring doesn’t get damaged. Have had mine for 12 years. Only replaced the original back then because I used compressed air on the booster and the O-ring flew off and landed behind some equipment in my shop. Looking for it, I could see it landed in some spider webs. NOPE! KAC sent me a few replacements
